All-New, 2018 GMC Terrain Debuts with Bolder Design, Diesel Engine



2018 GMC Terrain Crossover

General Motors used the 2017 Detroit Auto Show to unveil the all-new, 2018 GMC Terrain, showing off its bolder exterior design, higher quality interior, modern tech and convenience features, and optional diesel engine.

The second-generation of GMC’s compact crossover eschews the squarish angles and trapezoidal grille of the previous model for a more streamlined profile and large rounded grille, a styling direction clearly inspired by the latest GMC Acadia. The sickled-shaped headlights and floating roof design are the biggest standouts.

Opting for the Denali package gets you the sub-brand’s signature chrome grille, body-color fascias and lower trim, chrome roof rails and side mirror caps, and 19-inch ultra-bright machined aluminum wheels.

Jumping inside, the new Acadia offers a more premium-feeling and sounding interior courtesy of more soft-touch materials, genuine aluminum trim and standard active noise cancellation. Infotainment duties are mostly carried out by a seven- and optional eight-inch infotainment system with 4G LTE connectivity and Apple CarPlay / Android Auto support. The conventional shifter has been replaced with an “electronically controlled gear selection consisting of push buttons and pull triggers”.

Five years of the OnStar Basic Plan is standard feature across the range.

Like the similarly-new Chevy Equinox, with which it shares its underpinnings, the Terrain can be had with the choice of either a 1.5L or 2.0L turbocharged four-cylinder engine. The former generates 170-hp and 203 lb-ft., while the latter produces 252-hp and 262-lb-ft.

The 3.6L V6 of the first-gen model is no longer offered and has essentially been replaced with a new 1.6L diesel engine that produces 137-hp and 240 lb-ft.

All engines are mated to a nine-speed automatic transmission that drives the front wheels or, if you so choose, all four wheels via an AWD system that can disconnect to a FWD mode in order to minimize drag and optimize fuel economy.

Safety has been enhanced by a range of new technologies, including Forward Collision Alert with Following Distance Indicator, Lane Keep Assist with Lane Departure Warning, Surround Vision, Low-Speed Forward Automatic Braking, and a new Safety Alert Seat.

2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport Rocks The Coupe-Like Look



2020 Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport

The Cross Sport is more stylish than the regular Atlas.

Volkswagen has revealed the all-new Atlas Cross Sport, expanding the Atlas lineup with a sportier, coupe-like crossover.

As a five-seat alternative to the regular Atlas, the Cross Sport eliminates the third row of seats in favor of a sleeker profile but still manages to provides 40.3 cubic feet of stowage space when the rear seats are up and 77.8 cu ft when folded flat.

A three-bar chrome grille, unique headlights, and more sculpted hood gives it a more upscale look than its larger sibling, while an available R-Line package amps up the sportiness factor with 21-inch wheels and sportier bumpers with chrome and piano black accents around the lower front air scoops.

The interior benefits from a few upgrades, featuring a new steering wheel and available stitching accents on the seats and door inserts. Heated rear seats, ventilated front seats, rear sunshades, and a 12-speaker Fender audio system are part of the options list.

As for power, buyers can choose between a 2.0-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine rated at 235 horsepower or a 3.6-liter V6 with 276 horsepower. Both engines are mated to an eight-speed automatic transmission, driving either the front wheels or, optionally, all four wheels.

The Volkswagen Atlas Cross Sport will be built alongside the Atlas and Passat at VW’s Chattanooga plant, with the first deliveries arriving in spring 2020.

It also benefits from new colors and more options.

Toyota has given the C-HR a few styling and tech modifications for the 2020 model year.

The biggest updates are at the front, where the small crossover features LED headlights, a restyled grille, and a new bumper.

The LE trim level also gets new optional 17-inch alloy wheels, while the Limited trim level sports new 18-inch alloy wheels.

Two new optional colors join the lineup, both available with a black roof only: Supersonic Red and Hot Lava Orange.

The interior updates are small, and include new seatback pockets and windshield visor extensions for the XLE trim level, and an 8-way power driver’s seat and Adaptive Front Lighting System (AFS) with headlamp auto-leveling for the Limited.

On the tech front, the C-HR now offers Android Auto to go along with the pre-existing Apple CarPlay and comes standard with SiriusXM satellite radio.

The 2020 Toyota C-HR continues to be powered by a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that produces 144 horsepower and 139 pound-feet of torque, sent to the front wheels by a CVT transmission. All-wheel drive is still not offered.

Dismal headlight performance prevented the 2018-2019 C-HR from achieving a Top Safety Pick award from the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, but this is an issue Toyota has presumably addressed for the 2020 model year.
